Lyn Pendle's July Food Bites Fridays at 11am
Go to her web page under Presenters Lyn Pendle for her July recipes and Chef recipes.
Lyn spent a month in Sarawak Malaysian Borneo working as a volunteer at Matang Wildlife Centre.
"To say that I enjoyed the experience would be an understatement it was amazing. Living in the rain forest was hot, humid and often wet but it was a real chance to see what the remaining rain forest looks like and the animals, birds, insects and reptiles it supports. Each fortnight there were 10 volunteers and our ages ranged from 18 to 64 years. We worked hard at husbandry, enhancement, farming and other projects like concreting but getting up close, though not too close, to the Orang Utans, long tailed and pigtailed Macaques, Borneo gibbons and sun bears was what it was all about.
The 6 diary extracts, interviews and photographs on my presenters page hopefully will give you a taste of what we did during our time on the project and some of the experiences we had.
I would like to thank Alice, Amie and James for letting me use some of their photos and to everyone who agreed to be interviewed you were great. Finally thanks to Leo and all his wonderful staff for making the whole experience possible and so enjoyable, even the poo shovelling!"
